Bonfire Euphorbia

An unusual, award-winning perennial
One look at Bonfire Euphorbia, and you'll see exactly how it got its name. This perennial emerges as a rounded green mound—almost shrub-like—that rapidly transforms to purple, red, and orange. In the fall, its grouped flower clusters turn ruby red, making it truly look like an autumn bonfire! This unusual perennial is an award winner, too. It won Colorado State University's "Top Performer" award in 2008 and 2009. As an added bonus, rabbits will keep away. The sap is irritating to rabbits and humans alike, so be sure to use gloves when handling this perennial.
